    SCENES AT OLD TRAFFORD

    A reminder of what happened at Old Trafford yesterday.

    Manchester United were supposed to be hosting Liverpool in a crucial Premier League clash, but the game was called off after protesters stormed the ground.

    The fans were protesting against owners the Glazers.

    Some even spilled on to the pitch, confronting the Sky Sports punditry team to make their case.

    Here's the incredible footage…

    PAUL CHANGE

    Roy Keane would swap Paul Pogba for Jack Grealish at Manchester United 'tomorrow' if he could.

    The Irishman told Sky Sports: "I’d swap Grealish for Pogba tomorrow, absolutely. Of course (they can all play together). Why not?

    "We look at the stats for Manchester United over the last few years, whether it’s getting to semi-finals or ten league games where they’ve drawn, seven or eight of them have been 0-0.

    "They’ve not had the quality in the crunch times. You can talk about Pogba, but they’ve not done it when they’ve had to do it.

    "If Grealish comes in, get rid of one or two of them, get rid of Pogba, move him on.

    "They’re talking about a contract, I think they’re worried because he’s into the last year, if they’re going to cash in on him, then do it this summer.

    "You can’t have enough quality players at a club like Manchester United."

    MORNING, FOOTBALL FANS

    Manchester United’s game with Liverpool was called off yesterday, after a section of protesting fans stormed Old Trafford.

    Thousands of disillusioned supporters gathered outside the Theatre of Dreams for a predominantly peaceful protest against the ownership of the Glazer family.

    A section of protesters managed to breach security and enter the ground, with an idiotic few damaging camera equipment and throwing flares.

    After initially delaying kick-off, it was determined that safety couldn’t be guaranteed, despite fans having been dispersed – leading to the match’s postponement.

    Sky Sports pundits Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, Micah Richards and Roy Keane, barring the odd idiot, were wholeheartedly in favour of the United supporters’ stand.

    Neville, 46, said: “This is a consequence of the Manchester United owners’ actions two weeks ago. There is a general distrust and dislike of the owners, but they weren’t protesting two or three weeks ago.

    “The Glazer family are struggling to meet the financial requirements at this club and the fans are saying that their time is up.

    “My view is quite simply that they’re going to make a fortune if they sell the club and if they were to put it up for sale now I think the time would be right, and it would be the honourable thing to do.”

    Meanwhile, Arsenal put their Europa League semi-final first-leg defeat on Thursday night behind them by winning 2-0 at Newcastle, with the returning Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring on his first start since recovering from malaria.

    Spurs also grabbed three points as they looked to keep their slim top-four hopes alive, as Gareth Bale scored a hat-trick on the way to a 4-0 romp over sorry Sheffield United at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

    FITS TO SIZE

    The Premier League fixture list has been thrown into chaos after Manchester United’s home clash with Liverpool was postponed due to furious fan protests.

    No new date for the game has yet been confirmed, with both clubs in urgent discussions to thrash out a plan.

    The end-of-season run-in is tight, especially for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer given his side are set to play the second leg of their Europa League semi-final against Roma in the Italian capital on Thursday.

    United would normally fly out to Italy early on Wednesday.

    They could, in theory, play against Liverpool today.

    But the potential risk of a further fans protest was being assessed last night, especially given the heavy police involvement yesterday.

    Liverpool might have to shift their game against West Brom on Sunday May 16 to the Monday and visit United on Friday 14 — the day before the FA Cup Final.

    Both teams must play their last games of the season on May 23 at 4pm, with that kick-off time set in stone alongside the rest of the top-flight fixtures that day.

    United and Liverpool are also in midweek action on May 19 — plus there is already a full fixture list next weekend.

    KARY ON

    Brendan Rodgers is making a stunning £35million bid to bring French midfielder Boubakary Soumare to Leicester City.

    The Foxes hope to agree a fee with Lille for their powerful star and offer him a deal worth around £5m to join them.

    It is a huge statement by Leicester who are prepared to back Rodgers as they prepare for Champions League football – and keep him happy.

    Soumare, 22, has been on Premier League wish lists for a couple of years, but the price tag has put off all previous attempts to sign him.

    Newcastle and West Ham looked but stepped back, while Tottenham and Manchester United have also been linked.

    However, Leicester are serious about spending big and hope to clinch the deal immediately.

    MOUR OF A FOOL

    Spurs' hat-trick hero Gareth Bale has taken a dig at sacked Jose Mourinho, by revealing that his side are now finally trying to play 'the Tottenham way'.

    The Welshman said: "The fact that we’re more on the front foot.

    "We’ve been working on that now for the last few weeks.

    "It’s obviously not going to happen overnight but I feel we’re taking a step in the right direction and we’re playing football the Tottenham way."

    GARETH BALE SPEAKS

    Spurs' hat-trick hero Gareth Bale has had his say, after scoring a hat-trick in Tottenham's 4-0 rout of Sheffield United this evening.

    He told Sky Sports: "It was a great performance from the first whistle.

    "We got the ball, got control of it and played some good football.

    "Nice to get a hat-trick but more importantly three points for the team, and we move on to the next one.

    "I just needed to get a run of games, and I’m doing that now. I’m happy, and when I’m happy I normally play well."

    FULL TIME: SPURS 4 SHEFF UTD 0

    Tottenham Hotspur shrugged off last weekend's Carabao Cup disappointment by battering relegated Sheffield United in North London this evening.

    Ryan Mason restored Gareth Bale to the starting XI, with the Welshman running riot on the Blades.

    Spurs' Real Madrid loanee belted home an excellent hat-trick, before Son Heung-min netted a fantastic fourth late on.

    The Lilywhites, who featured a lively Dele Alli from the start, will have delighted fans by going for the jugular, rather than sitting back after taking the lead.

    Three points for Ryan Mason's side sees them climb to fifth, five points off the top four.

    POLICE: IT GOT OUT OF HAND

    GMP Assistant Chief Constable Russ Jackson described the protest at Old Trafford today as “reckless and dangerous”.

    He added: “We understand the passion many supporters have for their team and we fully respect the right for peaceful protest. Plans were in place to ensure this could happen safely, but it soon became clear that many present had no intention of doing so peacefully.

    “The actions of those today required us to take officers from front line policing and call in support from neighbouring forces to prevent the disorder getting worse. At different points, bottles and barriers were thrown, officers assaulted and people scaled the stadium structure creating risk for themselves and officers

    “We have launched an investigation and we will be working closely alongside partners to ensure we establish the full circumstances surrounding today’s events and prosecute those responsible.”

    POLICE PRESENCE

    Police were forced to take action at Old Trafford earlier after the protests, got “reckless and dangerous” say Greater Manchester Police, writes RICHARD MORIARTY.

    Cops said around 200 protesters gathered outside the Lowry Hotel and more than 1,000 fans were at Old Trafford.

    They said protesters outside the ground were “especially aggressive and antagonistic towards officers before around 100 fans broke into the stadium, forcing MUFC staff to lock themselves in offices.

    Bottles and metal crowd barriers were thrown at the police and horses, leaving two cops injured – including one who was attacked with a bottle and suffered a significant slash wound to his face, resulting in hospital treatment.

    BRU WHAT?

    Newcastle manager Steve Bruce believes that Fabian Schar’s red card against Arsenal this afternoon was ‘very harsh’.

    He said: “I’ve seen it again, and I just think it’s very harsh.

    “It’s not a really reckless challenge.

    “If we’re not careful we’re going to take all contact away from the game, and you need to get among teams like Arsenal to compete with them.”

    KEANE TO MAKE A POINT

    Manchester United legend Roy Keane believes that today's protests at Old Trafford could be 'just the start'.

    He said on Sky Sports: "The United fans have had enough and they're doing it because they love the club. It's not just as a result of what's happened the last two weeks with the Super League… it's been building for a number of years. They've come to the end and feel enough is enough. It's a huge statement for the game to be called off.

    "There's been a build up in tension, whether it be about ticketing, poor communication, things going on in the background. The leadership of the club has not been good enough. When they look at the owners, they feel it's just about making money. The United fans have looked at the Glazers and though enough is enough.

    "They're doing because they love the club. Some people won't agree with it but sometimes you have to put a marker down for people to take notice.

    "This will go out all over the world, and hopefully the owners of Manchester United will sit up and take note. These fans are deadly serious and this is just the start of it from United fans – I can guarantee you."
